Georgia Giving Week and our first CAES Giving Day are fast approaching! The G-Day Game on Saturday, April 17 kicks off Georgia Giving Week. This year also marks our first CAES Giving Day within Georgia Giving Week! April 19 is the day for all CAES grads, employees, students, parents and friends to rally around our college in the spirit of philanthropy.
To add to the Bulldog spirit, there are giving challenges that can be unlocked during the week. Help CAES reach the goal of having donors from all 50 states to unlock $1,000 to the CAES Deans’ Promise – our college’s commitment to providing experiences beyond the classroom for students. See the full list of challenges and opportunities below to learn how your gift could be matched or help unlock additional scholarship money.
Each donor during Georgia Giving Week and CAES Giving Day will receive a set of exclusive embroidered vintage UGA sticker patches (pictured below) plus a 20 percent off coupon for the UGA Bookstore (valid until April 30). What great incentives in addition to knowing we are supporting CAES.
Alumni Board Challenge: When the CAES Alumni Association Board reaches 100 percent giving DURING GIVING WEEK, it will unlock $1,000 toward the CAES Alumni Association Eterna Endowment.
